5 more hospitals join Apple health records project

Five more hospitals recently signed on to Apple's health records project.

The iPhone maker released plans in January to integrate patient health records into the iPhone's Health app as part of its iOS 11.3 beta rollout. The program launched at 12 hospitals, including leading providers like Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine. Since then, more than 90 hospitals, health systems and clinics have signed onto the project, according to Apple's tally as of Sept. 6.

Ricky Bloomfield, MD, clinical and health informatics lead at Apple, tweeted an update, including the five hospitals that joined the initiative Sept. 14.

Here are the five latest hospitals and clinics to adopt Apple's health records feature:

1. Central Valley Medical Center in Nephi, Utah

2. Family Foot and Ankle Clinic, P.A. in Coon Rapids, Minn.

3. Munson Healthcare Charlevoix (Mich.) Hospital

4. Sansum Clinic in Santa Barbara, Calif.

5. Thayer County Health Services in Hebron, Neb.
